Steven Avery Files Appeal To Get Charges Dismissed
This past week, EVERYONE has been talking about Netflix’s Making A Murderer, the documentary that chronicles the story of Steven Avery. Avery was falsely convicted of a rape that he served 18 years in prison for and, then, convicted after his release for the murder of Teresa Haibach. The documentary shows a lot of evidence showing why Avery might have, yet again, been falsely convicted. Now, TMZ has broken news today that Avery has filed an appeal on his own to get the conviction thrown out. Want details
Steven Avery Making A Murderer Appeal Filed
TMMZ has detailed that Avery has asked the “Wisconsin Court of Appeals to declare a mistrial.”
This is due to the fact that Avery claims the jury was “tainted” due to one juror making “repeated comments that he was ‘f**king guilty.‘”
According to TMZ’s report, Avery also stated that this juror in question told other members of the jury that “If you can’t handle it why don’t you tell them [the judge] and just leave.”
In the documents TMZ reviewed, they report that Avery also said “the scope of the search exceeded the limits set by the search warrant itself.”
In addition, in the new documents, he claims Teresa’s vehicle was “not properly sealed with tamper-proof tape” and this allowed the police to continually open and close her door. Due to this, Avery claims cops were able to “planet evidence” in the car- specifically referencing his blood that was in Teresa’s car.
Finally, the TMZ report claims Avery claims he was “incompetently” represented by his attorney.
It will definitely be interesting to see what the court does with this and we will keep you posted.
